1 in 4 American jobs will be outsourced

Who's sorry now?

How about most American workers. Not only are we aging as a population who's not having babies (78 million baby boomers will turn 60 soon...yikes!), but if we don't solve this immigration mess soon, we'll see even more jobs go overseas, agriculture. PS - You don't think we couldn't import ALL of our fruits and vegetables? Think again.

Here's proof from a former Fed Reserve dude:
WASHINGTON — Alan Blinder, former vice chairman of the Federal Reserve, told Congress Tuesday (June 12) that one out of four U.S. jobs are vulnerable to offshoring.

Binder now an economics professor at Princeton University, told the House Science and Technology Committee that American jobs in science, technology and engineering are most vulnerable to offshoring.
